We are just returning from a week in Colorado providing OpenGov Budget Training to leadership staff from a beautiful rural County

We specialize in expert flexible budgeting and reporting support services for municipalities, counties, school systems, special districts and non-profit agencies.

Forward looking government leaders appreciate the value that modern transparent financial tools can bring their organization and the public.

Small agencies have unique challenges in staffing the specialized skills and hands-on time required to take full advantage of these tools.

We can help. We offer both contractual and free service portfolios.

Consulting and support services for small agencies, including:
1. Budget process and publication support

A free resource for small agency budget training, and the home of the unique on-line MCC Practical Pragmatic Budget Handbook. We use the MCC Budget Blog to discuss budgeting issues, processes, and current news impacting small agency budgeting, and are always happy to host guest posts.

Budgeting is a much larger activity than preparing a set of numbers and success is critically important to every local agency.
